Here’s a 9-Year-Old Performing “Dead & Bloated” with Stone Temple Pilots
Speaking of parenting decisions with which I’m not 100% comfortable: this 9-year-old, known only as ‘Vedder’ (Christ, I hope that’s not his real name), got to sing lead vocals for Stone Temple Pilots when they played “Dead & Bloated” on March 10 at The Marquee Theatre in Tempe, AZ.
On the one hand, holy crap, that’s awesome, and this kid will definitely remember the experience for the rest of his life.
On the other hand, there’s something creepy about watching a child sing a song about the stench of death, the lyrics for which were written by a guy who died young. Shiver.
Still, I hope they hire this kid to replace new singer Jeff Gutt. That’s pretty much the only way I’m going to see STP live ever again.
